Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

In the second half of the Autumn term we will be looking at 'Peace' through the conflicts of the First and Second World War.  We will be covering many aspects of the war, including the historical timeline and what life was like when living in the trenches.  We will be looking at some of the famous poets in Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen and finding out why the war is also known as The Great War.

As part of the topic we will be looking at Goodnight Mr Tom and Machine Gunners.   Both books capture the historical events of the War and give an insight into life in the Second World War.
